Weekend hijinks.

Friday, I got to hang with Sarah and Texy. They both came up to the studio for a bit and much goofiness ensued.



There was hula-hooping…


There was posing…


More posing…


And there was this. Don’t ask.

Saturday morning, I was supposed to meet Chelsea for coffee, but instead, I woke up to this:



Meet Winky.
previously known as Hayley

Her left eye just wouldn’t stay open. At first, when it started on Friday, I thought she was just winking at me. By Saturday morning though, I figured maybe Winky needed a trip to the vet.

Therefore, no Chelsea coffee-date for meeeeee :(

(Winky has nearly mastered the art of SQUINTING, a cunning technique used to avoid allowing eyedrops IN the eye.)

(Also? I don’t think she appreciates being called Winky.)

(Also Also? Today is her birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY WINKY, I mean, HAYLEY!!!)

Saturday night, I went to my cousin’s 40th Birthday Casino party! Those people are NUTS! Naturally, that’s why I {{heart}} them!

Let’s just say there was massive quantities of alcohol, a bikini-clad stripper, bhangra music and a can of whipped cream. We’ll just leave it at that, k?

Good times.

Adam is possibly a little sad he missed it.

Sunday, I just layed low. Talked to my mom and my bf. Took some naps. Watched some TV. Knitted a swatch.

Here’s something goofy though…

I was sitting, knitting away on my swatch, right? knittin’ knittin’ knittin’… more good times…when I got to a KNOT!

It happens.

Knots suck, but they happen, right?

Right. Check THIS out though:



See something WIERD with this?

The ball I BOUGHT was green. After the knot? It’s BLUE.

So wierd!

    Take it back to the yarn store. You might get your money back.

    That’s completely ridiculous about the yarn and OH MY GOD the hijinks. Sorry about Winky.

    alien yarn ball!

  5. Silvia Says:

    Has Winky had a bad eye job? She needs a better surgeon.

    Your yarn in nuts – really nuts.

  6. Amy Says:

    Lucky you, hanging out with Texy and Sarah. Winky looks kind of freaky like that. And your yarn is f-ed up, sister! Makes for some interesting stripes though.

  7. Lizzy B Says:

    Wow. That’s seriously surreal. I hope Winky/Haley’s eye gets better soon. Pet eye injuries are no fun. I think hazard pay should be offered to anyone who has to medicate an animal’s eye. :)

  8. Stacey Says:

    Oh, poor kitty. And that blue green yarn? So odd. How the hell did that happen?!

  9. Stephanie Says:

    Poor Winky – are the drops helping? The yarn – really weird. I say take it back.

  10. Sarah Says:

    Only you. Only you.
